It’s almost like Massport and how they owned Hanscom Field and Boston, before they took over Worcester Regional Airport (ORH), How has that worked out? As we analyze the numbers of the DCU in Worcester, our recommendation will be that we should at least put it out to bid through an RFP to see exactly what the building could return to the tax-payers of Worcester from an entity like the Massachusetts Convention Authority or some other private source.
To get some idea of the size of the Massachusetts Convention Authority, click here for the 2015 financials. They ended the year sitting on over $805,000,000 dollars!!
The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) owns and oversees the operations of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC), The Lawn on D Powered by Citizens Bank, the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass. and the Boston Common Garage. The BCEC and Hynes have earned a rare gold standard from the International Association of Congress Centres (AIPC), making Boston only the fourth city in North America and the 12th worldwide to have been awarded this top standard, the highest certification level a convention facility can achieve under strict AIPC guidelines.
In 2015, the MCCA hosted 262 events at the BCEC and Hynes with 724,292 attendees, generating 632,433 hotel room nights and $784 million in economic impact.
The MCCA’s mission is to generate significant regional economic activity by attracting conventions, tradeshows, and other events to its world-class facilities while maximizing the investment return for the residents and businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
